My brief paper summary:
In our daily lives, it is apparent that socio-economic status can be seen through education,
healthcare, job opportunities, and housing. Those who gain more significant resources, skills,
and qualifications are more prone to obtaining more favorable jobs and lifestyles. Therefore, I
have decided to write about social stratification for my final paper. I believe that this topic is
important because I see the social structure of stratification everywhere in our society. For
instance, when walking down the street to class, I can see the division in social inequality with
the homeless sleeping on the road instead of people who have a home to reside in during winter.
Through this paper, I want to highlight these divisions in society using the three systems of
stratification: slavery, caste, and class.
I want to delve deeper into the sociological aspects of why people’s lives are greatly affected by
which socio-economic class they are born into. By using theoretical frameworks from Max
Weber and Karl Marx, I want to identify the causes and consequences of social inequality that
occurs with social stratification (particularly in the United States) and see as the world
progresses, if there has been a positive change in social stratification effects.
In my paper, I will include examples highlighting social stratification’s class systems and
analyzing them through a sociological lens, for instance, with the Titanic story. Those people on
the ship who held first-class tickets were saved because they resided on the upper decks, where
lifeboats were accessible, and warning alarms were more noticeable. In comparison, only 30% of
the second class passengers and 34% of the second-class passengers survived. This is because
these passengers lived on the lower decks, where their chances of drowning were higher. This
example of the Titanic demonstrated how social inequality with social stratification has been
around for a long time and dramatically affects people’s lives.
